Neurotic Pregnant Woman

Okay, so ever since last Thursday my imagination has been running wild. I took it real easy this weekend, but I was still analyzing every little pain or feeling I had in my body. I just knew I was going to go into labor at any moment, so I called the doctor yesterday morning and they saw me in the afternoon. (I'm sure the nurse was wondering why I didn't go for therapy instead of coming to their office!) It's amazing how stress can affect your body--my blood pressure was higher than I've ever seen it--it's no wonder I couldn't sit still! The doctor measured me again and I was the same, thank the Lord! She is still going to visit with the perinatologists again about my options and I'll see her on Thursday for my regular appointment. I calmed way down after I saw little Baby C playing with his foot like nothing exciting was happening. Very reassuring and I feel much better today, especially since Clayton is back at school and I can just sit in one place most of the day. I appreciate all the prayers everyone is saying on our behalf--they are working!!

It definitely IS amazing how stress can affect you. I'm glad you have time to yourself during the day to just relax. :hug:
